The Lord is the sustainer of my life. He keeps me going when I sometimes think I can't continue on. Sounds crazy I know....that I can't keep on....but my thoughts sometimes do get the best of me. The Lord knows when we need more than we have....more than we are capable of having on our own. Even though deep down somewhere I know that Gods got me....got "it"....I let my thoughts and fears get the best of me. The "it" in my life becomes stronger....in my thoughts....than the Sustainer of my life. But this morning....
This morning I was hit first thing with words from the Lord. At 4:17 I was wide awake and started finding things to read. I looked at my e-mail first and saw one from a friend. It said....HE loves you, and wants your complete trust to be in HIM. All I could think of was....I know....I know....but I'm having a hard time with that! So I read it a couple more times trying to get that thought process to sink in!! Then I went to what some call a bad thing....Facebook. I get a lot of scripture and good things on my Facebook....this morning those things seemed more than normal.
"Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Then there was a devotion from Greg Laurie titled Bring Him Into Your Boat....it was very good! It is about the disciples when they were in the storm tossed boat.
